Hillsboro /ˈhɪlzbəroʊ/ is the fifth-largest city in the State of Oregon and is the county seat of Washington County8 Lying in the Tualatin Valley on the west side of the Portland metropolitan area, the city hosts many high-technology companies, such as Intel, that comprise what has become known as the Silicon Forest At the 2010 Census, the city's population was 91,6119

For thousands of years before the arrival of European-American settlers, the Atfalati tribe of the Kalapuya lived in the Tualatin Valley near the later site of Hillsboro The climate, moderated by the Pacific Ocean, helped make the region suitable for fishing, hunting, food gathering, and agriculture Settlers founded a community here in 1842, later named after David Hill, an Oregon politician Transportation by riverboat on the Tualatin River was part of Hillsboro's settler economy A railroad reached the area in the early 1870s and an interurban electric railway about four decades later These railways, as well as highways, aided the slow growth of the city to about 2,000 people by 1910 and about 5,000 by 1950, before the arrival of high-tech companies in the 1980s

Hillsboro has a council–manager government consisting of a city manager and a city council headed by a mayor In addition to high-tech industry, sectors important to Hillsboro's economy are health care, retail sales, and agriculture, including grapes and wineries The city operates more than twenty parks and the mixed-use Hillsboro Stadium, and ten sites in the city are listed on the National Register of Historic Places NRHP Modes of transportation include private vehicles, public buses and light rail, and aircraft using the Hillsboro Airport The city is home to Pacific University's Health Professions Campus Notable residents include two Oregon governors

The first people of the Tualatin Valley were the Atfalati or Tualaty tribe of the Kalapuya, who inhabited the region for up to 10,000 years before white settlers arrived The valley consisted of open grassland maintained through annual burning by the Atfalati, with scattered groves of trees along the streams The Kalapuya moved from place to place in good weather to fish and hunt and to gather nuts, seeds, roots, and berries Important foods included camas and wapato, and the Atfalati traded for salmon from Chinookan tribes near Willamette Falls on the Willamette River During the winter, they lived in longhouses in settled villages, some near what became Hillsboro and Beaverton Their population was greatly reduced after contact in the late 18th century with Europeans, who carried smallpox, syphilis, and malaria Of the original population of 1,000 to 2,000 Atfalati reported in 1780, only 65 remained in 1851 In 1855, the US government sent the survivors to the Grande Ronde reservation further west10

The European-American community was founded by David Hill, Isaiah Kelsey, and Richard Williams, who arrived in the Tualatin Valley in 1841, followed by six more pioneers in 184211 The locality went by two other names—East Tualatin Plains and Columbia—before it was named "Hillsborough" in February 1850 in honor of Hill, when he sold part of his land claim to the county12 On February 5, 1850, commissioners chosen by the territorial legislature selected the community to be the seat of the county government12 Hill was to be paid $200 for his land after plots had been sold for the town site,12 but he died before this occurred, and his widow Lucinda received the funds13 The town's name was later simplified to Hillsboro A log cabin was built in 1853 to serve as the community's first school, which opened in October 185414 Riverboats provided transportation to Hillsboro as early as 1867 when the side-wheel steamer Yamhill worked on the Tualatin River11

In 1871, the Oregon and California Railroad line was extended to the area, but it ran just south of town because the city did not want to give the railroad land in exchange for the rail connection11 Hillsboro was incorporated as the Town of Hillsboro on October 19, 1876, by the Oregon Legislature15 The first mayor was A Luelling, who took office on December 8, 1876, and served a one-year term16 Notable later mayors included Congressman Thomas H Tongue 1882 and 1886 and state senator William D Hare 188516 In 1923, the city altered its charter and adopted a council-manager government with a six-person city council, a part-time mayor who determined major policies, and a city manager who ran day-to-day operations17

On September 30, 1908, 5,000 people gathered as the Oregon Electric Railway opened a connection between the city and Portland with an interurban electric rail line, the first to reach the community18 In January 1914, the Southern Pacific Railroad introduced its own interurban service, known as the Red Electric, on a separate line and serving different communities between Hillsboro and Portland1920 SP discontinued its Hillsboro service on July 28, 1929,20 while the Oregon Electric Railway's passenger service to Hillsboro lasted until July 193219

A brick building was constructed in 1852 to house the county government, followed by a brick courthouse in 187321 In 1891, the courthouse was remodeled and a clock tower was added,22 and the building was expanded with an annex in 1912 A new courthouse replaced the brick structure in 1928 The last major remodel of the 1928 structure occurred in 1972, when the Justice Services Building was built and incorporated into the existing building21

The city's first fire department was a hook and ladder company organized in 1880 by the board of trustees now city council23 A drinking water and electricity distribution system added in 1892–93 gave the town three fire hydrants and minimal street lighting24 Hillsboro built its first sewer system in 1911, but sewage treatment was not added until 193625 In 1913, the city built its own water system,26 and the first library, Carnegie City Library, opened in December 191427 From 1921 to 1952, the world's second-tallest radio tower stood on the south side of the city,28 but in 1952, the wireless telegraph tower was demolished

Hillsboro's street system differs from many others in the county42 Most cities in Washington County use a numbering system and cardinal direction orientation based on a grid that begins at the Willamette River in downtown Portland, which was originally part of Washington County42 For example, the street names in Beaverton generally include Southwest SW prefixes because Beaverton lies in the southwest quadrant of the Portland grid In Hillsboro, some county road names and addresses conform to the Portland grid instead of Hillsboro's internal cardinal direction grid,43 and the city has been working to make addresses and streets within Hillsboro conform to the internal grid4344

The internal grid in Hillsboro centers on the downtown intersection of Main Street, which runs east–west, and First Avenue, which runs north–south Most addresses within the city include a quadrant prefix: NW, NE, SW, or SE Main Street is simply designated as East Main or West Main, and First Avenue is only North First or South First45 Addresses on the streets' south side and the avenues' east side have even numbers, while odd numbers are on the opposite side45 Hillsboro's street system contains 20 blocks per mile 125 blocks per kilometer45

North–south through roadways are called avenues, while east–west roadways are called streets46 All cul-de-sacs are named as either places or courts46 Roads that curve can be named drives46 Non-city streets may not conform to these naming conventions43

The city is divided into eight planning areas, each of which contains several neighborhoods47 The east planning area contains the Tanasbourne neighborhood and Oregon Health & Science University's West Campus47 The northeast planning area includes the Orenco, Orenco Station, Airport, and West Union neighborhoods47 Jackson School, Sunrise, and Glencoe neighborhoods lie in the northwest area,47 and the Dennis, Garibaldi, and Connell neighborhoods are in the west area47 The central area includes the Downtown, Jackson Bottom, Henry, and Eastwood neighborhoods47 Blocks in the downtown core are 400 feet 120 m long on each side48 The Minter Bridge, Rood Bridge, and River Road neighborhoods are in the south planning area;47 the southeast area consists of the Reedville and Witch Hazel neighborhoods,47 and the Brookwood planning area in the center of the city contains the Cedar, Bentley, and Brogden neighborhoods47

Landmarks in Hillsboro include the Washington County Courthouse, the seat of county government49 Along the western edge of the city is Hillsboro Pioneer Cemetery, established in 1870, which serves as the final resting place of city pioneers and politicians50 Next to the airport is the Washington County Fair Complex, home to the annual county fair51 Located at Shute Park is the 25-foot 76 m tall wood sculpture Chief Kno-Tah, donated to Hillsboro and dedicated in 1987 as part of Peter Wolf Toth's Trail of the Whispering Giants52535455
